LG Optimus 4X HD to debut on 27 August – but is it any good?

LG has always had a bit of a tough time in the smartphone market over the years. The devices are certainly stylish, but seem to divide opinion time and again.

The tech giant unveiled its next flagship smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD, earlier this year, and the device is set to hit shelves on 27 August. So what do you need to know about the LG Optimus 4X HD, and should you buy it?

LG Optimus 4X HD specs

At 8.9mm, the slimline device boasts a bumper 4.7-inch screen with a True HD IPS display, delivering 313ppi and a crisp, bright image.

On the inside we have a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, as well as 16GB of internal storage and a 2150MAH long-last battery.

The Optimus 4X will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as standard, but LG hasn’t been able to promise us a Jelly Bean upgrade as yet.

LG Optimus 4X features

With some very fierce competition at the high end of the smartphone market at the moment, the Opptimus 4X needs to be packed-full of features.

LG has gone some way to achieving this, with the inclusion of things like NFC and an impressive 8MP HD camera.

There’s also QuickMemo, which offers users the chance to share information with others by simply pressing a function key and adding a comment, image or symbol to any image.

But the jewel in the feature crown of the Optimus 4X has got to be MediaPlex, a very cool program that will have any budding film directors weak at the knees.

MediaPlex essentially lets you play around with videos, from slow-mo to live zoom options, as well as allowing you to fingertip seek and draw during playback.

There’s no doubting the appeal of the Optimus’s features, and the specs are decent enough. But, once again, LG has fallen short of the very high Android benchmark set by the likes of Samsung and HTC.
